Actually, yes. That is exactly what some are doing thank you very much.

 

Like I said which was ontopic (unlike your post) there needs to be clarification of what people are talking about. Handle height at setup compared to impact. Or if the handle is lowering or raising during impact interval.

 

This has an affect on swing direction and spin rates.

 

No need to apologize, I forgive you.

Yes it is very much true, we have been warned about spy's watching what we say on twitter, FB and on here.  There is a certain instructor that is running out of time, pulling straws and outsourcing his Trackman info from a former S&T instructor.  His recent article in Golf Digest talking about taking a divot with a driver, shows he's being led down the wrong path.  The correct info will be presented this year and will be timestamped.  Not going to have any problems like there was with Sean O'Hair.

Wow... This could get interesting considering the only article I can think of talking about Drivers and divots is from Sean Foley....  I'm guessing you won't elaborate though  :)

I have to repeat myself because the OP can be taken in differing views. lowerING... as in hands ACTUALLY getting lower from P6.8-P7.3 OR just lower than they were at Setup.

 

In which case they won't be lower than they were at setup (unless you setup like Chris DiMarco) and hit slices (wait... thats his pattern too),

 

But you would probably (hint) want to swing a little to the right with the driver....

I know it seems ridiculous but it is true.  It's not really as much on here but def on facebook and twitter.  You'll  notice we never talk about Tiger's swing a2_wink.gif #hisean  It kills me but I've been sworn to secrecy.  All the "answers" are on this site though, check out  the "Swing Thoughts" forum.

That's weird considering he has many students who drive the ball quite well...

apparently Rose and Mahan don't count for much......lol, I've now heard it all. For how much 'free' info is given out on this site why would anyone care if 'elite' instructors were paying attention. Copying is supposed to be the highest form of flattery.

My last post on this thread was a year and a half ago.  Like I said I was asked by some friends at the time to not comment on Tiger's swings.  Now it's not really a big deal.
